Interesting - I employ a lot of people- maybe I'm paying taxes for you. Which of course has nothing to do with any of the discussion, but that is your point, right?

rev- as i mentioned it is the employers who pay the tax- not all of the taxpayers- many are confused by this and so I wanted to be sure it was clarified

Revisionist- The UI program is funded by employers who pay taxes on wages paid to employees, not the taxpayers in general.

Max- I've read and compared the bills (there are more than one). You must be confusing me with another poster. Or you like to make things up. My post was in response to your orginal false claim- but you like to change the subject it seems. Not worth trying to respond to the rest of your misconceptions, maybe someone else will.

maximum- re your claim of BS

"Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) acknowledged on Sunday that the claims he made two weeks ago -- that Democratic health care legislation would allow the government to "pull the plug on grandma" -- did not reflect the language of the bills.

In an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation," the Iowa Republican admitted that the current legislation being considered by Congress didn't include the infamous death panel provision that would allow the government to determine who should live or die."

a link to the truth o meter for health care- there is so much to be debated & criticized about this issue but it is hard to have a rational, productive discussion when people believe and argue for or against things that have been proven false- of course, some will cling to their beliefs no matter what the evidence is to the contrary but hopefully they are in the minority

maximum- that section of the proposed bill was taken out- sadly, those with a financial and/or political agenda fabricated a lie that this meant 'death panels'

in truth, this section proposed that medicare cover the costs of a person consulting with a doctor regarding their end of life decisions- this is called an advanced directive and allows the individual to decide whether they want life support, feeding tubes etc- a very very important document to have but many do not- as anyone in the medical profession can tell you, it is a nightmare for the patient and family when a person does not have an advanced directive

those who created and perpetuated this lie knew exactly what they were doing - i feel sorry for the people who were misled- this is elder abuse in the worst way- created by those with a financial and political agenda- there is a special place in hell waiting for these so called humans
